Road House (1989)

Ending / spoiler

(8 votes)

Brad Wesley taunts Dalton by deciding the fate of either Elizabeth or Wade, through a simple coin toss. Dalton tries to get Elizabeth to get out of dodge with him, but when she refuses out of fear of him, Dalton later learns that Wade's fate was decided, as he is stabbed to death. Enraged, Dalton storms Wesley's ranch and kills all of his men (with the exception of Tinker, who is plumeled by a stuffed polar bear). After a fierce confrontation with Wesley, Dalton spares his life. The moment Elizabeth enters, Wesley attempts to shoot Dalton, but is gunned down by Pete, Red, and Frank. Before the cops arrive, the men hide their guns and everyone pretends nothing happened. Dalton and Elizabeth remain together.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they are discussing why Dalton fired Mr Wesley's nephew (upstairs in the Double Deuce). Mr Wesley's nephew threatens Dalton with a knife and when Dalton takes a swing at him, there is blood on Mr Wesley's nephew's face way before contact. (00:34:05 - 00:38:00)

Trivia: During the fight scene between Jimmy and Dalton, Jimmy slams a log against Dalton's chest. The log you see here is a real one. Marshall Teague thought the log was a breakable prop and kept slamming it into Patrick Swayze's chest with each take. By the end, Swayze's chest was covered in bruises.
